[applause] >> thank you, bob. >> you for your leadership. good morning, everyone. we are going to be talking about something that i have been very interested in, and that is mobility. the ability to have technology work for you, like this microphone. we have worked hard for a number of years. i had the privilege of working with gavin newsom in the past to during his administration to create the electric vehicle infrastructure for the city and began the conversation and the collaboration with the other counties to bring an electric vehicle corridor. it signals our efforts to support the creation of infrastructure to the electric vehicle industry. of course we have encouraged the private automobile creators to join us. today is a wonderful opportunity to do that with a bmw. any of you who noticed the labels in this city, you will certainly noticed the popularity of bmw as a corporation, not only a great company but one that is also on the cutting edge of the use of technology. i want to thank them and welc
, technology, the oils. holy cow, pins are flying everywhere! next thing you know, to heavily mix sports metaphors, the bears are adding two touchdowns. to their minus 11 advantage on this pin action. we got a 25-point differential going into the -- going into the second half here. 25. wow. that's going to be tough. oh, get this. it gets worse. this was an amazing one. remember when the market was under the impression it was good news if romney takes the white house? be careful what you wish for, partner. today's macro conclusion from the recent romney surge was truly a low blow. it started to dawn on people that the first thing romney would do is fire bernanke. and there goes qe3 with all the gasoline that pours on the retail fire. give the bears another couple of touchdowns. you know what? let's make this one a truly ugly one, except for the people who took the under. let's make it 39-0 for the bears. bottom line, we got a lopsided bear victory today, one that requires me to take license to come up with 129-point decline. it was an ugly beatdown in the frozen tender, but here is the gr
technology. speaking in brussels, the german defense minister refused to accept any blame for the failure of the merger. >> this was a commercial decision made after many discussions. we have stated our opinion, and i have no further comments to make on that. >> from a business point of view, the deal made sense. the merger would have created the biggest company in the defense industry. combined, the firms would have employed more than 200,000 people and generated revenue of 38.5 billion euros, and it would have overtaken their american competitors -- lockheed martin and boeing. bae systems has a strong presence in the american market, whereas eads has never been as successful. for that reason, this could have been a missed opporunity. >> i would like to draw in our political correspondent. simon, there was suggestion the deal collapsed because of german objections. what was it the germans were not happy about? >> it seems that germany, like france, was unwilling to give up state influence over this important defense company, which is what bae systems wanted them to do in order to secure

where there's a common dynamic between paris and san francisco have made innovations, technology and the spirit of enterprise and all those elements together enable a concrete relationship between paris and san francisco and even remember it last time, with had a virtual highway between san francisco and paris, we started this virtual highway, it had a lot of babies and a lot of [inaudible] in paris and in san francisco was created, were developed from this common belief that we had in innovation, in research and with the need of building economic development on new technology, on new ways of living and creating wealth and progress of the 21st century. and it's in this spirit that with [inaudible] that i'm happy to salute with all my friendship, we are going to start a new period of our links, our ties, mayor lee is a very popular man, a very popular mayor and i want to know first the reputation of the people of san francisco through him and through his progress. we have another common link, we believe that innovation can be noble if it starts many the people, so from the interve
that northern california, the bay area has been the center of business technology of the world and many of these businesses have been either in san francisco or close to san francisco. i think this will allow more of these companies to locate a larger presence into san francisco and even if some of their detailed operations remain outside the city limits, almost all the support organizations for these companies such as their legal, their accounting, their advertising are located in san francisco and of course this would be another opportunity for more of a presence of companies where their workforce is, so those are some of the benefits but i think in terms of the shadows, clearly the staff has done a magnificent job of presenting how demin mouse the shadow increases are and how the increase in new sunlight from the benefits of the plan will more than mitigate any increases. >> commissioner harrison? >> first of all, i would like to commend the committee for doing the work, the staff doing the work on this thing, showing the human beings out there with what with what they're doing in th
